Little Boat


You’re
thousands
of miles
away
you’ve become
a dream
a memory
you come
to me
in dreams
I don’t
remember

Lost
like a boat
set free
in a storm
you drift
further
out to sea
while I remain
ashore
watching you
bob and toss
in surf

just like my
dreams
of you
makes me toss
and turn
at night

I remember
months ago
when you
slept
next to me
in the little
row boat
of your dreams
you bobbed
and tossed
you’re dreams
taking you
out to sea

and farther
away
from me
